romance—it’s adventure/suspense with strong romantic elements. The two main
romances in the book are between Gideon (sea captain) and Ramon (privateer) right after
the American Revolution, and between Teag and Anthony in current time, and while the
romances play an important part in the plot, the focus is on the action/mystery/supernatural
elements. (Gideon and Ramon work forbidden magic to bind their souls together forever to
protect the coast from a malicious demigod, and because they never want to risk being
separated in the afterlife.) There are two secondary romances, an MM one between Dante
and Coltt (privateers in the Revolutionary era) and between Cassidy and Kell (MF but nothing
beyond a few kisses and cuddles). There is no explicit/on-page sex. Both Dante and Gideon
are bisexual, and those pairings are important to the plot.

The clock is ticking for Cassidy and her friends to stop the
